Re: Having increased pain and weakness in left arm since the ESI! Scared!!

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to let everyone know that the pain in my arm has decreases slightly.

As for the rest of my symptoms they are generally the same. They very in intensity and location from day to day but that was pretty much the trend before the injection. It will have been a week tomorrow since I had the injection.
Don't know what is next if I don't have relief from this.
How many of these injections do you try before you resort to more drastic measures?????
The neurologist thinks I am a good candidate for a foraminotomy but I just can't stand the thought of another surgery!!!
Since May of 2004 I have had 6 surgeries and I am about tired of them. I do not do well with anesthesia. I get very sick about 10 hours later and I have urinary complications after and of course the anesthesia head ache from h***!!!!
